As the first generation of legal cannabis takes shape, the state of Oregon is to be commended for the transparent way they have gone about building their system. Since no one can be completely sure just what systems will work, and how they will work, Oregon has done its’ building in the open so others may gain from the Oregon experience. It’s a shame an old saying by Ben Franklin is going to rear its’ head — there are humans involved, you know. Oregon first:
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has issued licenses to the first two labs accredited to test cannabis flower and other cannabis products in Oregon’s regulated recreational marijuana system. The OLCC has also approved the licenses for two recreational marijuana processors.
“Now businesses are licensed to start testing product which will allow its movement through our regulatory system and the industry supply chain,” said Steve Marks, OLCC Executive Director. “We expect additional lab capacity to come online to meet the needs of the fall marijuana harvest.”
Pixis Labs and Green Leaf Lab, both in Multnomah County, are now allowed to test product provided to them by other licensees using the state’s Cannabis Tracking System (CTS.) Pixis and Green Leaf Lab have also been certified by ORELAP, the State of Oregon’s laboratory accreditation program, administered by the Oregon Health Authority. Loud Labs, LLC and Frave, Inc., both located in Multnomah County, are licensed to process cannabis flower into other cannabis products. Loud Labs, doing business as Dab Society Extracts, is licensed to produce concentrates, edibles and extracts. Frave, doing business as Cascadia Herbals, is licensed to produce concentrates and edibles.
To date, the OLCC has approved 231 recreational marijuana producer, lab, wholesaler, and processor licenses. OLCC investigators are processing 548 other [varied] applications . . .

As for BF: “Experience is the best teacher and a fool will have no other.” Offered in evidence — with the knowledge of what is in a single history book the leadership in China could avoid every environmental disaster the West inflicted on itself. Instead, they seem intent on repeating the same damage. Humans.
